I love Illume Pineapple Cilantro candles! They smell like fresh pineapple -- plain and simple. Don't let the other notes listed confuse you. These are the only pineapple candles on the market that don't have a weird undertone that triggers migraines for me. The same scent by Yankee Candle smells more like a tropical blend so if that's what you're looking for stick with YC. But, if you want something that smells like fresh, juicy pineapple go with Illume. They also offer it in a variety of beautiful containers and only use natural waxes, pthalate-free natural fragrances, and essential oils -- may be why they don't bother me. They also have a wonderful throw. The only complaint I have about Illume candles is that they are very temperamental. If you trim them before lighting the first time, trim them a little too short (ever), or don't rotate them each time you burn them they can have issues such as never burning properly or burning unevenly. If you're willing to put in a little extra effort, though, they're truly fabulous!
